DIY Wood Plank Bunny

From time to time an idea comes to me and it feels too sim­ple to be true. That is exact­ly how I felt when I fin­ished this craft. This wood plank bun­ny start­ed with this sim­ple white­wash pal­let plank from Wal­mart, how­ev­er a sim­i­lar look could be achieved with a piece of scrap wood or even card­board. If you’re like me, you might already have one of these handy lit­tle things in your craft stash. Grab it for this quick and cute Spring project.

Ok so first things first, I made some whiskers for my wood blank bun­ny using 16 gauge craft wire from the jew­ellery sec­tion at Wal­mart as well. I cut 3 pieces approx­i­mate­ly the same length and twist­ed them togeth­er in the mid­dle before attach­ing them to the wood plank. Once attached I cov­ered the cen­ter of the whiskers with a paint­ed round knob for the nose.

Then can the ears, which I craft­ed from burlap fab­ric. I sim­ply free­hand drew the ear shape before high­light­ing them with the same “Bal­le­ri­na” pink craft paint by Waverly.

Of course, no bun­ny is com­plete with­out a cute bow on top and that’s is just what this lit­tle gal need­ed. Some scrap fab­ric and a bit of raf­fia and rib­bon and wha-la!

For the final touch I added a pair of lit­tle bun­ny feet by hot glue­ing lit­tle wood slices to the bot­tom. This gave the plank plen­ty of sup­port to stand on its own.

I mean seri­ous­ly how cute is she? I love how she stands in her own and has a cute lit­tle abstract feel.
